Agile Discovery and rapid customer centric validation. Quickly prove ideas will deliver expected benefits before investing money in them.
The purpose of Discovery is to find out if an idea is viable. The techniques used during Discovery are designed to reduce the risk of building the wrong thing, whilst swiftly determining how to deliver the solution (or not). To do this we establish whether the idea is: Feasible, Usable and Valuable.
Usually lasting up to 5 days, Discovery helps the Product Owner choose the right solution to invest in next. This avoids pre-determined solutions by gaining early feedback from end users whilst rapidly refining the initial estimate.
